OOTD: Pink peplum and roses

I love this top from Deb, which I also have in green. Luckily, I fit into a 3x, which is the largest size–but I wish it weren’t that way. I don’t like when I’m at the top of a size range, which means that anyone bigger than me is left out. Everyone should get to wear lacy pink peplum shirts (well, if they like that sort of thing).

Also, I have mixed feelings about the existence of juniors’ plus sizing in general. On one hand, it tends to fit me better than regular plus sizing. But on the other hand, it usually runs smaller, and stops at a smaller size. Which is not ok–teenagers, just like adults, come in all shapes and sizes. They may be a little thinner on average, because aging is correlated with weight gain. But that doesn’t mean they don’t need fabulous clothes in sizes above 3x.*

Pink peplum for everyone! *raises fist*

Top: Deb, skirt: Kohl’s, rose bangle: H&M, rhinestone bracelet: Forever 21, necklace: my great-grandmother’s, earrings: Artifaktori, flower crown: Crown & Glory

Also, have I mentioned I love Crown & Glory? They’re pretty awesome. I’ve added their rose crown to my mental list of Things I Want To Collect In Every Color, along with Domino Dollhouse’s petticoat.

*And that’s without even getting into the issue of what constitutes “teenage” vs. “adult” clothing…

  1. Lurve seeing you make the flower crown work…I bought one not unlike that (only the flowers are a lot bigger) for my Frida Kahlo Halloween costume and it’s so pretty and it was expensive so I want to find everyday ways to wear it…We shall see.

    • Thanks! Your flower crown sounds awesome. I’m looking forward to seeing pictures of it, both as part of the Halloween costume and as an everyday accessory. Just out of curiosity, where did you get it? I’m always on the lookout for floral crowns to pine over!
